Combination of outcomes and assigned weights

How much of each measure must be achieved

Determine Desired Outcomes

Consolidate and streamline the standardized capture of inventories across various dimensions with ease, including:

Existing Repositories

Configuration Management Databases


Finance Catalogs

They can all be easily imported into NH360 Enterprise Connect, and then cross-referenced and validated.


Gather Inventories

Build a foundation to rationalize data quickly and provide visual anchors for relevant viewpoints, including:

Business Capability (“what” the business does)

Value Streams and Processes (“how” the business works and can be improved)

Information Landscapes (“the Stuff” of the Business, what is important)

Organizational Landscapes (“who” is involved, and how value flows across the organization)

Technology Reference Models (the supporting technologies that are the foundation for your IT Department)


Model the Business

Build fully-integrated surveys, distribute them, collect results, resolve conflicts, and capture the findings.

Quickly and easily build surveys to collect the information you need

Distribute the surveys to stakeholders, including partners and suppliers

Collect the results, resolve conflicts, and capture the findings in the Insight Repository

Gather Application intake through easy-to-use forms


Analyze the results across various dimensions, including Sentiment Analysis, Heat Maps, Application Value Charts, and more.

Sentiment Analysis shows the types of responses and questions needing refinement for additional coverage

Heat Maps can be automatically generated using base models such as Business Capabilities, Information Landscapes, Value Streams, Organizational Views and Technical Reference Models

Application Value Charts (“TIME Charts”) show the relative disposition of the Applications in one or many Portfolios

The Criteria for all these Charts and Models can be adjusted on-the-fly to support rich analysis and to compare scenarios to support discovery of Functional Redundancy, Strategic Fit, and Application Business and Technical Health


Analyze Findings

Use charts and models to develop business cases, programs and projects, migration strategies, business capability maturity plans and more.
